Mark Twain



“Loyalty to a petrified opinion never broke a chain or freed a human soul.”

Mark Twain was the pen name for Samuel Clemens (1835-1910). He was a famous humorist and wrote many autobiographical works, travel books, and novels.
Hannibal, Missouri, was the river town of his boyhood. The experiences he had along the wide Mississippi were a rich source for many of his books. Two of his most famous characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, have been endeared to young and old alike with their irresponsible and mischievous escapades.
Samuel Clemens was also a serious social critic. He used humor to express his offense to all forms of narrow-mindedness and prejudice.

Global PathMarkers

The Global PathMarker series is an eclectic group of people who were chosen as exemplars of the ‘great individual’ or hero archetype, the essential seed and fruit of creative activity in culture. Our aim is to stimulate curiosity and contemplation about the mysterious creative ‘oneness’ of life by celebrating its diversity as expressed by courageous visionary leaders.

Albert Einstein’s portrait by Frank Szasz was our first Global PathMarker. Szasz also painted our Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Mark Twain, as well as Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Schweitzer, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Franz Liszt, Pope John XXIII, and a series of Native Americans: Iroquois Chief Leon Shenandoah, Mohawk Chief Jake Swamp, Tom Banyacya of the Hopi, Black Elk as an Elder, a Medicine Woman, a Dancer, a Youth and a Young Child for the Global PathMarkers that we have available in a special limited edition of biographical bookmarks. We are also pleased to offer Szasz’ portrait of Carl Gustav Jung, published by CCHD Jung Project, KCMO. The Maria Montessori portrait was painted by Ernst Ulmer.
